Artist Judy Millar's bright, bold colours span 30 years

From Standing Room Only, 2:48 pm on 28 August 2016

Two canvases by Judy Millar painted around 30 years apart but similar in many ways, are being brought together for the first time. Judy has represented New Zealand at the Venice Bienale and since 2005 has divided her time between Berlin and Auckland. Her canvases tend to be large and abstract, using bright bold colours and strokes. As Lynn Freeman discovered, it was while Judy was working on a group of new paintings that she had a flashback to another abstract work she had painted in 1987. Judy Millar's exhibition Turning the World Inside Out: 30 Years a Painter opens on Wednesday at Auckland's Gow Langsford Gallery.
